Nauru abuse and sexual misconduct claims reviewed

IMMIGRATION Minister Scott Morrison has launched a review of claims of sexual misconduct and abuse at the Nauru offshore detention centre, but also said he has evidence of "fabrication" of such claims.

Mr Morrison said the review, led by former Integrity Commissioner Philip Moss, would examine the original claims made by Save the Children staff and investigate the veracity of the claims themselves.

While he said he was not "making any judgement" on either issue, at least 10 Save the Children staff had already left or been removed from the detention centre.

But Save the Children chief executive Paul Ronalds said he had no evidence of any "fabrication" of such claims, expressing full confidence in all staff who work at the centre.
